Indication: two degrees of unsaturation

Possibilites:

– two bi bonds (two separate double bonds or one triple bond), or

– one pi bond and one ring or

– two rings

and so on.

4-Chlorobutene (C4H7Cl)

Structural formulas

Degree of unsaturation of simple organic molecules

Degree of unsaturation and hybrid bonds

Example: one degree of unsaturation

4-Chlorobutene (C4H7Cl)

– 4 carbon, 7 hydrogen

– Number of hydrogen is different.

– each halogen atom (F, Cl, B, I) or other monovalent atom “replaces” one hydrogen atom, so

d= ((2.4+2)-(7-1))/2=1

– Number of hydrogen is different.

– each halogen atom (F, Cl, B, I) or other monovalent atom “replaces” one hydrogen atom, so

d= ((2.4+2)-(7-1))/2=1

Formula

divalent atom

Structural formulas

Degree of unsaturation of simple organic molecules

Formula

divalent atom

replace one carbon and two hydrogen atoms

Bonding

Structural formulas

Degree of unsaturation of simple organic molecules

Degree of unsaturation and hybrid bonds

example: one degree of unsaturation

Methoxyethene (C3H6O)

Structural formulas

Degree of unsaturation of simple organic molecules

Degree of unsaturation and hybrid bonds

example: one degree of unsaturation

Methoxyethene (C3H6O)

– 3 carbons, 6 hydrogen

– each oxygen (or other divalent atom) replaces one carbon and two hydrogen atoms.

– CH2 groups are sometimes referred to as methylene groups

so d= ((2(3+1)+2)-(6+2))/2=1

– each oxygen (or other divalent atom) replaces one carbon and two hydrogen atoms.

– CH2 groups are sometimes referred to as methylene groups

so d= ((2(3+1)+2)-(6+2))/2=1

– Since a divalent atom can take the place of a methylene group, it does not affect the degree of unsaturation, and can be ignored.
